Tiger Zinda Hai song Dil Diyan Gallan is a tribute to Yash Chopra, says director Ali Abbas Zafar
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif make for the most romantic and stunningly beautiful onscreen pair and it has been 5 years since the audiences have seen them in the theatres. For Tiger Zinda Hai, the high-octane action thriller that features both as fighting fit super spies, their onscreen romance is the highlight of Dil Diyan Gallan, a classic love ballad. Shot in the visually stunning, picture perfect locales of Austria; this song brings to focus their breath-taking chemistry with the indulgent lavishness of a classic love ballad.
Speaking about this visual treat director Ali Abbas Zafar said,
“I have always wanted to pay a tribute to the classic Yash Chopra romantic songs which I have grown up loving. And I’m thrilled that I finally got that song in Dil Diyan Gallan, an out-and-out romantic ballad on the lines of classic, beautiful love songs that the banner is remembered for by generations. Dil Diyan Gallan follows the same form/signature of a classic Yash Chopra song – aesthetic, inspired by the innocence of old school romances and at the same time, focuses on mature, deeply felt love”.
Vishal and Shekhar have composed this song that has been sung by Atif Aslam. Irshad Kamil has penned its lyrics. Vaibhavi Merchant has choreographed Salman-Katrina’s romance. With a bit of waltz, ethereal palaces and monuments, snow-capped and pristine Austrian locations, this song recreates all that we love about classic Bollywood romantic songs. Dil Diyan Gallan from Tiger Zinda Hai makes you believe in love all over again. Yash Raj Film’s much-awaited Tiger Zinda Hai is set to release in cinemas worldwide on 22nd December 2017.
